An outsider’s perspective

Winning awards is obviously lovely, but the judges’ comments on our most recent award gave us an outsider’s perspective to what ‘team Marbrook’ feels like from a carer or family members view.

Growing a therapy team

Having been open for nearly 10 months now, it’s easy to take for granted the amazing resource we have built here at The Marbrook Centre, in terms of the physical building and our therapy team.
